St Joseph and St Basils have been working in partnership in Birmingham since spring 2018.
Staff at St Joseph have raised over £10,000, through organising a Quiz Night and taking part in St Basils' Big SleepOut. The money raised support the St Basils Youth Hub.
The Youth Hub is the central point of access for 16-25 year olds in Birmingham who are homeless or at very real risk of becoming homeless. St Basils works collaboratively with children's services, Barnardo's, social housing providers and specialist mental health organisation. The aim is to provide immediate intervention for young people in crisis, whatever their needs, to prevent them from falling into homelessness.
Over a 12 month period, 3,228 young people came to the Hub for help, and 91% were prevented from becoming homeless.
